Akwa Utd embark on three weeks end-of-season break

Given Akwa United’s exit from the 2022 Aiteo Cup competition on Sunday in Enugu, the Chairman of the club Elder Paul Bassey has approved three weeks end-of-season break for players and officials of the team starting on Tuesday August 9 to Saturday September 3 2022, while training for the new season is set to begin on Monday September 5th 2022.

Elder Bassey gave the approval on Monday after the team’s return from Enugu following a shock 1-2 defeat to Kogi United in the Round of 16 of the Aiteo Cup.


Elder Bassey commended players and officials for their efforts and genuine contributions to the fortunes of the club.
He tasked the players to behave professionally and maintain unalloyed physical, mental and spiritual discipline during the break period.

“The just concluded football season was a very tough and tedious one for us at Akwa United judging by the fact that it was our worst finish in the NPFL in the last six seasons.

“Having come to the end of what could best be described as a difficult season, we really need to go on a break, visit our families and friends and make out time to rest after such a marathon season.

” As you enjoy your holiday, remember to act professionally in all you do, stay away from activities that will affect your fitness level, remain focused and be disciplined,” said Elder Bassey


He emphasized that the resumption date of September 3 is non-negotiable and urged the players and officials to adhere strictly.
